When is 5 > 5?

Message 1 of 3

Apparently when you limit a series record to 5 episodes.


Can anyone help / explain this: I have a series set up to record up to 5 episodes, I have 6 recorded. Last week it recorded 12 before I could get around to watching them.

Did it put all 6 episodes in some folder?

If not, it must think they are different shows.

I have a number of series that delete previous episodes at the right number.

Maybe try changing the count, saving and then changing back.

Hi Pahiker:

You might also try setting up your recording series by specifying a specific channel from which they will be "taped"
